Pen & Globe

About the Blog

If you’ve made it to this page, you either are about to buy my first novel or you are wondering what this “Pen & Globe” is all about.  If the former, thank you, I truly appreciate it!  If the latter, great question.

Well, “Pen & Globe” is my new blog, where I give you a glimpse into my “permanently portable” lifestyle, replete with musings on everything from how to bang out an international thriller on a 50-to-60-hour-a-week overseas job (embrace the dawn) to who will win the next Champions League final (Barcelona over Bayern Munich) to what bottle of wine to purchase on your next trip to Cape Town (the 2014 Neethlingshof Estate Owl Post Pinotage is an excellent choice and under $25).

Then you tell me and everyone else on here what you think – entirely optional, yet highly encouraged.  And, being a working diplomat I will (reluctantly and at least until retirement) keep my views on politics, religion, and foreign affairs to a minimum, although most any other topic that crosses my mind will be fair game, nor should this stop you.   So, please, read on, reply at will, and most importantly, enjoy!
